Guyana Amazon Warriors Preview

Guyana Amazon Warriors have a very young team led by Nicholas Pooran with the likes of Shimron Hetmyer, Brandon King, and Chanderpaul Hemraj. Pakistani duo of Shoiab Malik and Mohammed Hafeez adds the much needed experience to their batting line-up. Anthony Bramble is their back-up wicket-keeper in the squad.

Afghani player Naveen-Ul-Haq and Romario Shephard will lead the pace attack of the team. Experienced leggie Imran Tahir will lead the spin attack with the likes of Kevin Sinclair, Ashmedd Nedd, and chinaman Waqar Salamkheil for company. Nial Smith and Odean Smith will be their back-up pacers in the squad.

Top players to bet on:

Nicholas Pooran – Pooran has been going through a rough patch for a long time recently and will look to end his run drought with a brilliant performance in this year`s CPL. He is too good a player to be struck in poor form.

Imran Tahir – Tahir has a vast experience of playing across various T20 leagues all over the world.  We expect him to set the running with a brilliant performance in the first math itself.

Nicholas Pooran (C & wk), Shimron Hetmyer, Brandon King, Chanderpaul Hemraj, Shoaib Malik/Mohammed Hafeez, Naveen-Ul-Haq, Romario Shephard, Kevin Sinclair, Imran Tahir, Ashmedd Nedd, Odean Smith

Jayden Seales – Jayden Seales has been very impressive in all formats of the game for his national team and picked up 11 wickets in the just 2 Test matches against Pakistan. We expect him to lead their pace attack from the front in this season.

Toss: To Bowl

Teams are opting to chase th total in the T20 matches off late and we expect both captains to bowl first if they win the toss.

This match will be a great contest between the experience of Trinbago Knight Riders and exuberance of Guyana Amazon Warriors youth. TKR has better balance and depth in their batting department with both teams having attacking players matching head-to-head. GAW lack depth in their pace attack and will rely heavily on the untested newbies to perform as a third seamer. Both teams match toe-to-toe in the spin department with good mix of experience and youth. But, we expect Trinbago Knight Riders to win this match and kick off their campaign.
